A 52-year-old Congress leader was allegedly hacked to death by unidentified miscreants in broad daylight in Sullia near Mangaluru on Friday, police said.

The deceased, Ismail Nelyamajalu, was the Congress minority wing local Karavali Valaya (coastal unit) president.

Police said Ismail was about to reach his car after  completing his Friday prayers at a mosque at Irvanadu in  Sullia when miscreants attacked him with machetes. He died on the spot.

Two years ago, Ismail and his wife Waheeda Ismail, who  was the president of Bellare Gram Panchayat were attacked by  miscreants. The latest attack could be a sequel to it, police said, adding that it could be personal and no communal angle had been revealed yet.

Superintendent of Police Bhushan Gulabrao Borase, ASP  Dushanth and other officials visited the spot.
